With a particularly lovely colour and retaining original engraved brass handles with snaped fixings, this beautiful early lowboy is of particularly good quality.
28 inches wide, 19.5 inches deep and 27.5 inches high.
For metric please multiply by 2.5
It is less common to see double drawers on such a small example and both drawers sit within attractively moulded borders and have retained their original fine oak boarded linings - very slender boards indeed with tiny dovetails and nailed up fine oak bases. The front and side aprons beautifully shaped - again a lovely quality detail and these would have been made at an additional cost by the cabinet maker
The twin boarded top is original also with a lovely shaped border. The exaggerated and long cabriole legs are original throughout and terminate with wide puddled pad feet to front and back with no breaks or repairs.
All original timbers throughout. Hefty backboard with large dovetails. Sits firm and sturdy. Back board of left hand drawer lining has a small replaced oak section. No worm. Minor dents, dings, scuffs consistent with age and careful use.
An extremely well cared for example, retaining original pegs, lovely deep and warm patination and in very good condition - from a private home.
A very good early oak lowboy made by hand in c. 1725 of desirably small proportions, with an excellent colour finer quality detailing and original handles.
